Community Conversations - Threshold ECDSA Signatures (Victor Shoup)
Principal Researcher Victor Shoup discusses the upcoming vote around threshold ECDSA signatures. In this talk, he will outline the cryptographic techniques used to reach the objectives of the proposal.

The proposal centers around canisters' ability to be able to hold BTC, ETH, and for them to create Bitcoin and Ethereum transactions. Since those networks use ECDSA, a canister must be able to create ECDSA signatures. The proposal is not in favor of the corresponding secret key to be part of the replicated canister state, meaning instead the secret key will be shared among the replicas of the subnet, and they must be able to collaboratively create threshold ECDSA signatures whenever a canister makes a signature request.
